Forty years since the passing of the Brent Tornado.

Following are a few photos from May 26, 2013, linked to that past.

The WindWood was known as the Cinderella Motel in 1973. Although there was damage to the motel, it served as secure shelter for some survivors who were traveling through Brent after being caught up in the “maxi tornado”.

The motel is located at the intersection of Main Street and Highway 82.
